Prenatal Rehab Program
Exercise during pregnancy can help to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. These muscles come under great strain in pregnancy and childbirth.
It’s no secret that your growing baby bump puts extra pressure on your lower half, resulting in lower back pain and an achy pelvis. Maintaining a strong core during pregnancy aso helps to lower the risk of pregnancy complications and speed post-delivery recovery.
Some of the other health benefits of moving regularly during pregnancy include::
- Reduce backaches, constipation, bloating, and swelling
- Boost your mood and energy levels
- Help you sleep better
- Promote muscle tone, strength and endurance
- Maintain a strong pelvic floor
Bellefleur Fitness has developed a 6 week rehab based program for birthing persons that is supervised by our qualified physiotherapists and prenatal support staff.
Mind, Body, & Baby
Designed and supervised by a registered Pelvic Physiotherapist alongside certified pre/postnatal yoga instructors, doulas, birth instructor, and nutritionist. These weekly 1.5 hour classes will progress you over 6 weeks to support the physical changes throughout pregnancy, prepare for labour, as well as optimize birth outcomes and postnatal recovery. This program is a blend of education and mindful movement and function.

The education you will receive is a beautiful blend of identifying your birth support team, stages of labour, options for pain relief, possible interventions, post birth recovery, pre/postnatal nutrition, and breastfeeding.
